    Course Description:

    Hi there. I’m Marinda Botha

    Thank you for considering taking this course.

    If you regularly need to speak or teach in front of others, or you need to record videos where you yourself are on-camera, then this course is for you.

    These series of exercises are geared towards warming up your body for performance, be it a public speaking event you need to do, a voice over gig, or performance on screen or stage.

    I’m a trained actor and voice over artist. I’ve been in the industry for 16 years, having worked and trained in Europe and South Africa.

    I am trained in stage and screen performance, voice overs, physical theatre, clowning and overall physical awareness of body alignment.

    I am primarily a voice over artist and trainer, with clients from across the globe. I have a deep love for movement, understanding your body as a performer, looking after your health and utilizing this tool of yours, to the best of your ability.

    We will look at Body alignment, Breath control, Articulation, Warming up the resonators and many more!



    • 10 -15 minutes of free time per day, to watch the lessons and then copy them.
    • No prior physical ability is required. These exercises work well for all ages and body types. They are extremely safe (and effective!).
    • A willingness to learn and improve. You only have one body. You need to take care of it.
    • A room where you can practice. Perhaps a mirror to watch yourself in as you do the exercises (though not essential).
    • Soft soled shoes, or as I prefer, go barefoot!
    • Students interested in public speaking or those wishing to improve their overall articulation or inability to speak clearly in front of others, are welcome to take this course.


    What Will You Get From This Course:

    • 17 video lectures demonstrating step-by-step the physical and vocal exercises discussed
    • 35 min of “talking-head” video content
    • Resources at the end of the course to many more warm up ideas
    • Tutoring from an artist who have made these exercises part of her life for 16 years!
    • A healthy body, mind and voice, ready to take on any presentation/performance!

    I obtained my degree in Performing Arts at the University of Pretoria, South Africa in 2000. I then promptly ran away to the UK, to further my training in Puppetry, physical theatre and performance in various genres. I spent 8 years working as an actress, voice artist and puppeteer in the UK, gaining experience in acting for film and television, creating and performing a one-woman show, amongst other puppetry projects. I have been in the voice over business for 15 years. I now work from my home recording studio, in South Africa, with numerous clients from across the world. I am also a Film lecturer in tertiary education, with 7 years teaching experience. I recently successfully completed a 3-year degree curriculum Screen Acting, which was accredited by the South African Council of Higher Education. I hope my combination of skills will serve you well.
